Based on docket sheet entries, after the verdict in George Zimmerman’s case, and while Shellie was awaiting trial in her perjury case, her parents were also going to court.
Shellie Zimmerman’s parents apparently invested in property that they rented. Of the four foreclosure cases, three are rental property, and one is for their own residence.
Case Number 2012CA001576
On March 23, 2012, US National Bank Association filed a complaint against the “non residential” house owned by Machelle and David Dean, Shellie Zimmerman’s parents. Carmillia Barns and Troy Chapman are also named as defendants. It is not known if they are tenants or co-owners. Judge Debra Nelson presides over the case.
Case Number 2012CA002452
On May 10, 2012, Bank of America filed foreclosure on “residential” property owned by Machalle and David Dean, Shellie Zimmerman’s parents. George Barns is also named as a defendant. It is not known if he is a renter or co-owner. Judge Rudisill presides over the case.
Case Number 2012CA003022
On June 11, 2012, New York Community Bank filed a complaint against “non residential” property owned by Machelle and David Dean, Shellie Zimmerman’s parents. Sarina Harmon is also named as a defendant. It is not known if this person is a renter or co-owner. Judge Debra Nelson presides over the case. On September 11, 2013, a final judgment for $108,877.57 was entered. That property is located in Fairlane Estates.
Case number 2012CA003896
On August 2, 2012, the Bank of New York Mellon filed a complaint against the “non residential” house owned by Machelle and David Dean, Shellie Zimmerman’s parents. Judge Debra Nelson presides over the case.
Court dockets do not provide the address for the property, so it is not known if the house that George and Shellie were renting from her parents for $1,000 a month is one of the foreclosures.
Why mention this? Because, in the midst of George awaiting trial and going through trial, Shellie’s parents had, and still have, their own problems. Robert Sr. and Gladys Zimmerman have stated to the media that since George killed Trayvon Martin, they have lost everything. Yet, both still have retirement income. Robert Sr. has a website asking for money, and he has a self-published book that he markets on that website. To the best of my knowledge, Machelle nor David Dean have a website requesting donations.
George’s parents did not make arrangements for him and Shellie to live with them under the same roof to share living and security expenses. It was Shellie’s parents that provided her and George with a roof over their heads.
On September 9, 2013, George thanked them by getting into an altercation with Shellie and her dad. Using her iPad, Shellie recorded the property she was moving out of the house, in addition to the altercation where she alleges George snatched her iPad from her hand. An outside surveillance camera recorded George Zimmerman take the iPad apart and throw it to the ground. That video also shows George Zimmerman reaching into his shirt as if going for his gun in a shoulder holster, and taking an aggressive stance.
